I watched the CNN series on the Kennedys yesterday which included the 1963 incident where Alabama governor Wallace tried to prevent the University of Alabama from admitting their first black students. President Kennedy ordered the national guard to be federalized and they ordered Wallace to step aside.
It is terrible that 55 years later we have a president who 57% of the country (including me) think is a racist.
What would Trump have done about Wallace? He reminds me a lot more of the racist Wallace than he does of Kennedy. He probably would have done nothing except defend states rights. He would have said the people in Alabama opposed to integration included “very fine people”.
